Using ClearCase in IBM RAD

Hello guys..

I need some help in using the ClearCase in IBM RAD. I'm using Windows platform and IBM RAD7.0.

My current situation is my friends and I still cannot find the way on how to install the Rational ClearCase. We already installed ClearCase Remote Client but we need a server so that we can use the ClearCase. For the time being, we only read some theories and concepts of the ClearCase.

I need people who can guide me in order to get the Rational ClearCase installed and how to configure it and how to use it as well. You may reply this thread or send me private messages. Maybe we can discuss together because we are very new to all those things.

Thank you in advance, Regards.

Just Beginner..

I am sure you already know that Rational Clearcase is source control software. There are natuive plugins available for both RAD and RSA. If configured properly, you will see top level menu options within RAD for Clearcase. Using the menu you can point to various Rational Cleacase repositories.

Configuring Rational Clearcase is a huge task, which involves configuring servers, backend databases etc. You should involve your operations team as well as some IBM support.

Helo Deepak, Thank you for your reply.

I have got the installer and already installed Rational ClearCase LT v7.0.1.
There is no Getting Start Wizard as the it has been removed for the version later than v7.0.
So I do not know how to create the storage location because for creating VOB, I need to specify the storage location first.
However, I am not able to do that. Hope you or anybody may help me.

Thank you.
I agree. Here's the link:
